Thoughts of a nerdy feminist
Thoughts of a nerdy feminist rated it 1 month ago
I knew from the heartbreak that came in the first two books in this series that I should expect this one to be similar. Honestly, though, I think this one was easier. It's hard to top the extreme amount of pain and loss that happened in book one. Hoa finally really grew on me in this book. I was f...

Series: The Broken Earth Trilogy #3 The last book in this trilogy was disappointing, but I'm not exactly sure why. I just wasn't engaged this time around, and the story seemed slower. A lot of the story solicited the reactions "Meh" or "Really?" and for some reason the second person stuff bothered...

After a rather confusing start, NK Jemisin once again delivers the inventive speculative fiction that I love. [spoiler] I was confused about the timeline of the story and how the 3 viewpoint characters were connected. But about 1/2 way through the text confirmed that the story was showing 3 diff...

Strahan impresses again, having gathered a fine collection of stories first published in 2016. You can see somewhat detailed thoughts on most of the individual stories in previous posts of mine, and I will finish that series in the first part of this post: Foxfire, Foxfire, by Yoon Ha Lee. 4 stars...

Harry the Mouse is asking his friends to borrow things then invites them to his home later in the week. It is scary walking in the dark to borrow the items. But it all turns out alright. I enjoyed this story. It is good for the little ones with repetition and good manners. It is not too scary ...

They were three interesting people and what happened to Sieh was intriguing, his having to deal with issues he never had to b...

The concluding volume in a trilogy whose first 2 entries both won a Hugo, this will be on my ballot next year. This series is great. This conclusion is brilliant and has pay off for so many world building hooks I'm surprised it isn't 1000 pages long. My favorite minor reveal is the origin of Safe...

One of the things I like to do with series, though it definitely has an impact on how much I get to read overall, is re-read the previous volumes before I dive into the new one - as a result, I've spent the past couple of weeks reading all 3 of the Broken Earth books (The Fifth Season and The Obelis...

I know that it's a travesty that I find positive reviews much more difficult to write than negative reviews. I know that says something about me, that I'm able to find the bad much easier than the good. The way that I think about it is: if something isn't broken, I don't notice. If something IS brok...
